~Nois Saxophone Quartet Competition Results

Rube Goldberg

Professor Lucifer Gorgonzola

This year’s call for scores had the largest response of all that we have held. Sixty-four entries from around the world were sent in. These compositions covered all ranges of style and manner of musical expression. We were truly awed at the variety and quality of the entries.
Larry Axelrod, Kyong Mee Choi and Tim Johnson narrowed the field to twelve finalists, which were sent to ~Nois for their final decision. With typical verve and energy, the members of the quartet listened carefully and decided quickly. The winning composition is Lucifer Gorgonzola by Jeremy Rapaport-Stein. Jeremy is currently a PhD student at Brandeis College in Boston. He hopes to join us for the concert in June!

We thank all those who took the time to submit to our call for scores. We learned so much about the amazing possibility of the saxophone from your music.
Congratulations to Jeremy Rapaport-Stein!
